MARTIN BOWER

Movie & TV Model Maker

Martin Bower is one of the most accomplished British model makers working in film, television, and publishing. Over the past 40 years he has created more than 1,000 models—from spacecraft for films Like “ALIEN,” “Flash Gordon,” “SPACE 1999,” “Blake’s 7,” and “Dr. Who,” to cottages and castles for the giftware company “Lilliput Lane.”

Martin also does many private commissions. His models grace the desks of well-known people! In the early 1990’s, he reproduced the entire “Thunderbirds” fleet of craft; including not only all five Thunderbirds, but also all of the vehicles carried in Thunderbird Two’s pod, like the “Mole” & “Firefly”! When “STINGRAY” & “Captain Scarlet” were shown, Martin rebuilt all the craft from these shows as well. He photographed these models in realistic settings for the comics and poster magazines that ran concurrently with the shows, re-creating more than 120 realistic scenes! He currently stays busy building models for films and for private collectors, but always welcomes inquiries.

Martin was co-supervising model maker on “ALIEN,” which won the Oscar™ for Best Visual Effects in 1979.
